* CALL TO WORSHIP Ray Durney
It is good to praise the LORD
and make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night.
This is the day the LORD has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
* HYMN No. 568 Take My Life and Let It Be Consecrated
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Help us, O God of our salvation,
for the glory of your name;
deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake.
For the times we have not kept our promises:forgive us.
For the times we have reneged on our vows:forgive us.
For the times we have not let our yes be yes and our no be
no: forgive us.
For the times when we are afraid to give our word, share our
dreams, and speak our hopes: forgive us.
(Prayers of Silent Confession)
Kyrie (sung): Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON/WISDOM FOR LIFE
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation:
everything old has passed away; see, everything has
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through
Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
So then we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is
making his appeal through us. Therefore, we regard no
one from a human point of view.
ANTHEM: The Twenty-third Psalm Malotte
(Emerson Chen, Soloist)
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever, and evermore.

OFFERING OURSELVES AND OUR GIFTS
Offertory: God Bless America Irving Berlin
(Maureen Saepia-Chen, Soloist)
While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
as we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
Refrain: Congregation sings second time
God bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
to the oceans white with foam,
God bless America, my home sweet home.

Deep peace of the running wave to you,

Deep peace of Christ, of Christ the light of the world to you,
Deep peace of Christ to you.
